These were so good. I baked my potatoes in the oven and let them cool. I had large potatoes so I was able to get 6 wedges cut from each potato. I scrapped out the potatoes and mashed them adding a little salt, pepper, butter, cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon, and diced onions. After they baked I let them cool for a couple of minutes and then garnished with a dollup of sour cream, they were a perfect snack.

Pretty tasty! The directions were hard for me to get through and I kept having to tell myself; no those instructions are for mashed potatoes. I used the microwave to "bake" the potatoes which cut down on my overall time quite a bit. All in all a big hit!

Love them! I cook the potatoes the first time around in the microwave and then definetly save the insides for mashed potatoes... Works out well for me!

Perfect. I made these for Super Bowl and every one went. I did bake the potatoes the day before. Before serving, I did bake at 400 for 10 minutes skin side up and then another 10 minutes skin side down. Not dry - just perfect. They were a big hit! A winner all around.

This recipe makes very tasty potato skins. I made 4 potato skins out of each potato, so some of them were pretty small. I only put butter on the insides of the skins, then put them in the oven, and forgot to set the timer. They did come out pretty dry (my fault completely), but with bacon, cheese and green onions on top, and sour cream added the extra moisture they needed. They were they were all eaten off of the plate before the end of the party.

There were a big hit, TRUE! ESPECIALLY with kids of "all ages" too! After pre making, than baking, kept them warmed in an entertaining dish! These were DEFINATELY D-E-L-I-S-H!

Thanks Dancer, these were a hit. The guests consumed them fast and furious. We used ranch dip as a topper and sour cream as a topper (two bowls on the side). Delicious plain or topped with either sauce. The butter makes the skins look great. They are best served super warm. I had made them and baked but they shriveled flat when melted so I added more topping and melted again making fluffy high end restaurant skins. Yum. Enjoy. ChefDLH

A big hit on Super Bowl Sunday! I made approximately 50 skins and they were gone before half time. I really liked the idea of cutting the potato in fourths. Will surely make these again and again. Thanks Dancer!!
